PG-13 | | Action, Drama, Thriller
A dramatization of the disaster in April 2010, when the offshore drilling rig called the Deepwater Horizon exploded, resulting in the worst oil spill in American history.
An oil rig was built just for this film, this rig is located in Chalmette, Louisiana where filming mostly took place. Director Peter Berg claimed it was one of the largest practical sets ever built.
Ugh, that face. Sociopath.
Mike Williams: Nah, that is focus, that is intensity, that is drive.
Halliburton was the company responsible for cementing, not Schlumberger. The Schlumberger crew had different responsibilities on this well.
During the opening logos and first few opening credits, you can hear a real life audio clip from the trial that ensued following the disaster.
